Job creation may be bane of Romney's past

Mitt Romney's "job-creating credentials" under scrutiny as plant linked to Bain Capital is about to be shut.

    US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is on a European tour to promote among other things, his job-creating credentials - but back home in a small town in Illinois, those qualities are being questioned.

    Nearly 200 workers at the Sensata plant linked to Romney's former company, Bain Capital, are about to lose their jobs.
